I've been using (mostly) SuSE since version 5.x, IIRC. I like it, but
it's probably no better/worse for a n00b than any of the "unholy
commercial triumvirate" of SuSE/RedHat/Mandrake. (Now that RedHat has
spun out Fedora, things may be different).

One irritation is having to download your own versions of
xine/xmms/mplayer because they're chicken to play DVDs and mp3s. These
usually get b0rked when upgrading.
